Recovering Damages for Rape
A rape or assault will affect you for the rest of your life. You deserve to be compensated for the pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and other losses you have endured. Contact an attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your rights are protected.
Becoming a victim of rape means a lifetime of recovery. Though you are a survivor, you know you will never truly forget and may always be dealing with the aftermath of your assault. Whether you were abused by an acquaintance, a family member, or a stranger, you have the right to pursue a civil action against your abuser as well as any institutions or individuals that neglected to report or protect you from the crime. At Randall Vogt, PC, our lawyers are dedicated to helping the survivors of abuse assert their rights and collect the financial compensation they deserve.
If you have been raped in the last 24 hours:
- Call the police
- Allow the police to obtain medical attention for your protection and to preserve biological evidence.
- Do not shower or take a bath.
If you have had involuntary sex, call the police immediately. You will be assigned an officer experienced in sex cases, sensitive to the issues you are facing. You will be treated respectfully and a rape victim advocate will protect your rights throughout the criminal process.
At Vogt & Long, P.C., we are compassionate and supportive in asserting the rights of rape victims. If you have been abused, you can trust that our attorneys will be discreet and sympathetic in handling your case. If you are afraid or ashamed to come forward, we can file your case anonymously. Throughout your case, you will be supported by legal professionals dedicated to your cause and your recovery. We will answer any questions you may have about your legal case and help you find appropriate resources for therapy or other treatment.
We have successfully handled even the most sensitive cases on behalf of rape victims against employers, school teachers, clergy, landlords, and other institutions that neglected to report or prevent rape and abuse.
